Even More Plaudits for Kristen Hinman and "The Pope of Pork"


You didn't think Gut Check would let a week pass without noting another award nomination for my colleague Kristen Hinman, did you?

Hinman's "The Pope of Pork" has been nominated for the 2009 Association of Food Journalists Awards Competition in the category "Best Newspaper Food Feature (Circulation 250,000 and Under)." Winners will be announced this October.

Just last week Hinman was nominated in the "Food Writing" category of the Association of Alternatively Newsweeklies' 2009 AltWeekly Awards. And at the beginning of this month, Hinman won a James Beard Award, her second, for "The Pope of Pork."
